The butterflies, beautiful but the farmers dislike!

I very appreciate to the butterflies. It is very wonderful when I walk in the garden or somewhere else and see the butterflies fly around the flowers. Yes, It is a very stunning scene. What a wonderful world!

I believe that the most of people who live in the city are impressed with that scene I have describe above. While the farmers don’t think like that. Why? The easy reason that the farmers told me because of worms. Yes, It is true. Anyway I could not imagine how the worms could impact their farm.

I have always taken some photos from their farm, the Suan Lung Chook as usual. You can read my story from this link,  Suan Lung Chook…The Farm in the City. They did not deny a wonderful scene of flying butterflies in the garden. They have always been excited when I showed my butterflies captures to them.

Until one day in the morning I found that why they don’t like the butterflies. I saw a caterpillar on my impala lily and I observed that it could impact the tree in a short time. It could eat the leaf of the impala lily rapidly in a half an hour. How it could do that! Its teeth look like a blade or a sawing machine which could slip from the left to the right and slip back in the opposite direction very quickly. Then I could understand quite well what will happen when the caterpillars impact in the farm.

However who could deny the beautiful of these creatures in spite of how much they could impact the crops.

  1. Its a balance. In nature, the worms feed on the plants, but as adults they help pollinate the flowers.
    So, can’t say they are pest. It is humans that invaded their space and plant crops!

    1. Yes, I think so. just sometimes that I have heard an enormous herd of worms impact the corps. 🙂 Look at my impala lily, they lost their leafs in 3 hours. Just only 1-2 caterpillars. L:))

  2. What a huge variety! It was interesting to see the ones that look similar to ones that are here in Texas, and to guess if they are part of the same family. I also liked learning the names of your butterflies and moths!

    1. Thank you so much. That’s the nice one. It could find in the garden in Bangkok. For me, I like the common cruiser because they are so beautiful. I have never seen them in Bangkok. 🙂
